This grave is on private property that was owned by the then sheriff, Zack B. Brown. For years the local Chinese visited the grave of Lum You at this sight. It seems that Oscar Bloom had robbed Lum You, so the latter found Mr. Bloom later that day and shot him dead. Lum You was found guilty of murder and was hanged in front of quite a large crowd.

    What makes us Different?

    Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

    Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
